We had a wonderful time

I was very impressed with the service and everything went smoothly. I loved not having to think about how or when we were getting to another country because all of the details were taken care of by Nordic Visitor. Overall I think you guys did an incredible job! We had a wonderful time exploring on our own.

We felt that every aspect of our contact with you was professional and excellent and are very pleased we chose to book through you. There were no complications, errors, annoyances. We had a marvelous time in the three beautiful capital cities and loved every moment of our travels in them. We were especially impressed by the friendliness, courtesy and exemplary English spoken.

Fantastic Company - We loved our trip

I work in the travel industry and usually plan all my vacations myself via online research and experience. For my recent honeymoon my wife and I wanted to visit the Scandinavian countries and chose a tour on the Nordic Visitor website and then worked with Cecilia to customize it to our needs. While I tried to plan this trip myself, once I started working with Nordic Visitor I just gave up and let them handle everything as they were so good at it. They also got better prices that I could manage on my own so I got a perfectly organized trip and then it cost me less that I expected!
 
We flew into Stockholm and they had a driver meet us at the airport and take us to our hotel (we could have taken the train but preferred with all our bags to have a car). Our driver was great, even after she dropped us off she came into the hotel until we were checked in and made sure we had our welcome packet from Nordic Visitor.
 
For our trip we upgraded to stay in nicer hotels (well worth the money). Every hotel they got us was great, right in the city center so we could walk everywhere and they all included wifi and breakfast which at all 3 hotels was a 5-star buffet.
 
From Stockholm we took a train to Copenhagen, Denmark, from there an overnight cruise to Oslo, Norway (upgraded on the ship and again, it was well worth it, great cabin, free wifi, free drinks and snacks in the VIP lounge). While in Oslo we stayed at the grand Hotel, which is the most renowned hotel in the city.
 
From Oslo we took a train back to Stockholm (we had Nordic upgrade us on all trains to 1st class. A minimal fee but again well worth it).
 
Communication was great, every time I had a questions Cecilia or someone from their team answered straight away. I highly recommend Nordic Visitor to anyone who is looking to take a vacation in Scandinavia. The
